Delysia Chocolates

Chocolate for me!

I don’t know about you, but I enter lots of giveaways.  I leave begging, pleading comments, especially if I really want it.  So, when Lisa from Lisa is Cooking had a contest for chocolate wine truffles from Delysia Chocolatier, I left a comment.  A begging, pleading comment, because, c’mon…wine and chocolate…’nuff said.

Chocolate for me.

And guess what!!!  I won!!!   And it arrived in a pretty red box, tied with a pretty bow.  I carried my pretty box all around, taking pictures of it, here and there.  And then I finally opened it. Inside were nine of the cutest wine truffles that I had ever seen.  Of course, they were the only wine truffles that I had ever seen, but I dare you to find any cuter!

And then I ate one.  And then I was happy.  Very happy.  Yes, I know two are missing.  I had to give one to hubby, darn him for being home when the package arrived.


****Health Update*** (Notice that since these chocolates are classy, I changed the name of my updates). The biopsy went fine, or as fine as a biopsy can go. I won't know anything until maybe Friday. I want to sincerely thank all of you for your thoughts, and prayers and well wishes. It really means a lot to me. I think that the trauma of all this certainly warrants a new pair of shoes or two, don't you?

How nice that the chocolates came right when you needed a smile! They sound amazing. And, yes...definitely a pair of shoes or maybe even a shopping spree is in order:D

Barbara said...

Great win! I am not complaining, but I never win any of the giveaways! The chocolates look divine. So generous to share with hubby. I probably would have hidden them. ;)

Saying a small prayer for you for tomorrow's results!

Take care and keep us posted.
Hugs and Prayers,

It certainly warranted those lovely wine truffles, and absolutely a couple of pairs of new shoes are in order. Probably new purses to match, too.

I haven't stopped by for a while. I've become a poor blog follower recently, but I've been stopping in here for quite a while. What wonderful, cheerful and positive stuff you put out into the blogosphere. I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. You are in my thoughts. Your blog has certainly brought much enjoyment to me.

Wine and chocolate. The stuff dreams are made of. :)
I would think a biopsy is worth TWO pair of shoes. It's tramatic!

Mimi said...

How fun to win chocolates.
Have a good time shopping!

Hey, you're on a roll with winning stuff. Sweet.

And, I am always in favor of getting a new pair of shoes. Always.

Paula said...

Crossing all fingers and toes here for happy test results. Lovely chocolates. Shoes are definitely in order. Perhaps something to go with the shoes as well. Which reminds me ... how did you come up with the name "sidewalk shoes" for your blog?

Judi said...

Beautiful box!! Here's hoping the chocolate fairy will make everything well with you!!!

Joanne said...

Personally I would request a whole new wardrobe if I were you. Plus a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.

Those chocolates sound delicious! Perfect timing. Dark chocolate has antioxidants!

Les said...

I had to pop over to Delysia Chocolates' website and checkout their treats. Yum!! I wonder if they're sold in any of my local shops. The shipping's a little steep...

I'll continue to think of you today, sending positive thoughts for good test results.

Forget the shoes. Take a trip! :)
